The Oxford Academic Health Science Centre (Oxford AHSC) is the partnership and close alliance between four organisations within the NHS and Academia:

  • Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust;
  • Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust;
  • Oxford Brookes University; and
  • the University of Oxford

The Oxford AHSC coordinates clinical and academic excellence within the partners, working across the individual organisations and their departments and with other key stakeholders within Oxfordshire and beyond.  These stakeholders and collaborators are drawn from all branches of academia, from health and from industry and the third sector.

The Oxford AHSC is an integrated research environment, physically and strategically embedding basic and translational research with clinical evaluation. Using this, the partnership seeks to accelerate and realise patient benefit from research and innovation, by enabling smooth transition of innovations through the stages of the research life cycle and into clinical practice.  The Oxford AHSN is also a key partner with the Oxford AHSC embedded within the Network.

Collaboration and partnership are enabled and strengthened by the close location of the partners in the Headington Campus.  The Oxford AHSC also now supports the Hill – read more here.  In addition, the AHSC works with the newly designated Oxford and Thames Valley ARC (Applied Research Collaborative) and the Oxford NIHR MIC

In addition, the AHSC Partners have established a Registered Charity, the Oxford Academic Health Partners, to support the community in the achievement of its aims and objectives.
